Interpol Repatriates Voice Phishing Scam Artist Back to Busan

Interpol has repatriated a Korean man in his 50s suspected of setting up a voice phishing scam call center in the Philippines.

Interpol repatriated the man to Korea yesterday and the Busan Yeonje Police Station is currently investigating the suspect.

The suspect has been wanted by the police for having committed numerous phone scams from October 2009 by setting up a call center office in the Philippines.

The man was arrested in May last year with the help of Interpol, and has been on the waiting list at the repatriation reception center in the Philippines.

According to police, he secretly bought Wi-Fi equipment even while waiting to be repatriated, and gave instructions to other criminal members.

Police believe the victims of his phishing organization are scattered across the country, including Seoul and Busan.

Busan Yeonje Police Station plans to apply for an arrest warrant after further investigation.
